13 NEW LOCATIONS FOR PEEL’S RED LIGHT CAMERAS
Peel’s Red Light Camera Program has been updated with 13 new locations. 11 of the 26 existing locations were decommissioned and the other 15 existing locations have been refurbished and retained to maintain a total of 28 locations in Peel. Staff evaluated the locations based on the “Safety Performance Function” model to determine locations with the highest potential for improvements with a red light camera. Staff also consulted with Peel Regional Police on new and existing locations to determine the final locations. Red light cameras are a safety initiative to deter motorists from running red lights.

The cameras are on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They are connected to the traffic light (signal) and to sensors that are installed just before the stop line. The system constantly monitors the traffic light (signal), and the camera takes a picture of any vehicle that doesn’t stop at the red light.
Photos are reviewed by the Provincial Offence Officers and tickets are mailed to owners of the vehicles. The set fine for running a red light is $325, which includes a $60 victim surcharge and $5 court cost.
